This interactive, video-based course provides an introduction to the ASME B31.3 Process Piping Code. It covers the requirements for the design, analysis, materials, fabrication, testing and inspection of process piping systems. This ASME B31.3 training explores the rules for various components including fittings, connections, bends, valves and specialty components.  Other topics include dimensions and ratings of components, fluid service requirements for joints, piping flexibility and support, welding, heat treatment, bending and forming, brazing and soldering, assembly, erection, examination and inspection.
This course features case studies on branch connections, pressure ratings, piping flexibility and system specifications. Learners will be assessed on their understanding of piping joints, flexibility and fabrication.
By participating in this course, you will learn how to successfully:

  • Identify the responsibilities of personnel involved in the design, fabrication, assembly, erection, examination, inspection, and testing of process piping
  • Describe the scope and technical requirements of the ASME B31.3 Code
  • Apply and implement the quality requirements that are defined in the ASME B31.3 Code.

Who should attend?
This course is designed for engineers, managers and quality personnel who are involved in the design, manufacturing, fabrication and examination of process piping that is being built to the requirements of U.S. Codes & Standards.
